Jeff Saturday to Sign One-Day Contract with Colts and Other AFC South Must-Reads
Posted By Nate Dunlevy On February 19, 2013 @ 7:26 am In Colts News | No Comments
It’s just ceremonial for now, but Jeff Saturday is returning to the Indianapolis Colts.
Dave Furst of WRTV 6 in Indianapolis  writes that Jeff Saturday will sign a one-day contract (hat tip to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star).
According to Saturday, the timing of a one-day deal hasn’t been set, but the ceremony will take place sometime soon.
Irsay was always completely on board with that and had contacted me to do that. There’s stuff that happens with the league first that has to all take place. It just takes time to get things done.
This is just the first of what will likely be a string of honors for one of the most popular and effective Colts ever. Saturday has been rumored to be up for a front-office job with the team for nearly a year. He will likely also be inducted to the team’s ring of honor in short order.
Ceremonial contracts may be a little corny, but they offer fans the chance to hear from their heroes one last time as a member of the franchise. Given how little there is to talk about in the offseason and how insatiable the public is for news, writers are happy to cover the pressers just to have something easy to write about the next day.
In Saturday’s case, his victory lap as a Colt will be welcomed. He’s long been an engaging and thoughtful personality, and it seems only fitting that he’ll retire as a Colt.
Even if it’s only for a day.
Greg Cosell of Yahoo! Sports  says a pocket passer is still best.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle  says the Texans may look to an outside receiver in the draft.
Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle  reports talks haven’t really started with impending free agents.
Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus  ranks Pat McAfee high on the free-agent punter list.
Chappell of the Indianapolis Star  says old ties are being severed.
Phil B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star  says Dwight Freeney was fun.
Chappell profiles  Jerraud Powers.
Tom Gower of Total Titans  examines the center position.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean  says the Titans need to re-sign Jared Cook.
Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union  profiles the Jaguars’ special teams coach.
Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union  says the Jags probably won’t use the franchise tag.
